Homeschooling on the Road

Comics author Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics) and his family – wife Ivy and daughters Skye and Winter – are off on a year-long tour to promote his new book, Making Comics. The family is homeschooling the kids (6th and 8th grade) while on the road, and they’re doing some really fun things like podcasts and video interviews with comic artists they meet along the way. And the whole family’s blogging. So far it’s been fun to peek over their shoulders while they’re homeschooling, traveling, and meeting interesting people. I saw the McClouds when Scott was speaking here in Rochester at RIT, and I’d highly recommend taking in one of the family’s presentations if they come to your area. For their evolving schedule, visit the Making Comics 50 State Tour web site.
